Learn about the recently enacted Camp Lejeune Justice Act, the illnesses linked with toxic drinking water at the military base, and how people who suffered illness from exposure to the water might qualify for financial recovery.
Levin Papantonio Rafferty (LPR) law firm will present a Town Hall to inform the people of Pensacola about Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claims. The event will take place on August 31, 2022, at the Monument to Women Veterans Museum at 980 East Heinberg St., Pensacola, Florida, from 5 pm to 7 pm. Admission to the Town Hall is free.
Military service personnel and citizens who served, worked, or lived at the Camp Lejeune Marine Base between 1953 and 1987 could have been exposed to toxic drinking water and developed serious illnesses as a result of this exposure. These people might qualify to file claims against the U.S. government to recover losses from their illnesses.
“We applaud President Biden and lawmakers for taking this important step to consider the substantial harms people suffered from Camp Lejeune,” said LPR attorney Brian Barr. “We are holding this Town Hall to help those who served our country at this military base, as well as their families and civilians who lived and worked there, get the justice they deserve.”

Many of Those Impacted Don’t Know Their Rights to File Claims
On August 10, 2022, President Biden signed the Camp Lejeune Justice Act, part of the larger PACT Act. The Act creates a path for victims of Camp Lejeune’s contaminated water to pursue litigation against the U.S. government.
Among those who could be eligible for compensation are:
- Military personnel
- Military family members
- Civilian workers
“After decades of ignoring warnings and reports about the drinking water contamination, the U.S. government has finally come around to do right by the people who suffered from this inaction,” said LPR Attorney Sara Papantonio. “Sadly, many of those who were exposed died from their exposure-caused illnesses. We want to make sure all victims know about their rights to file claims and to help them pursue the compensation they are due.”
Papantonio explains that victims have a short window in which to bring their claims. The attorneys will discuss this deadline and eligibility criteria and will answer any questions attendees have about Camp Lejeune Water Contamination Claims.
